Ouse Valley Way Mile Marker #109
In Eastern England, United Kingdom
How Geocaching Works
One of a series of caches at mile intervals along the Ouse Valley Way.
The River Great Ouse flows from its source near Brackley to the sea at King's Lynn, running through Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk. Work is in progress on the Ouse Valley Way to open a network of footpaths along this magnificent river from 'source to sea' - making this route one of the longest river valley walks in Britain. The first section of the Ouse Valley Way walk opened in 1990 in the district of Huntingdonshire, and the whole route was formally opened in May 2004.
This is one of a series of caches being placed along this official Long Distance Footpath. The idea is to encourage more people to explore the walking equivalent of motorways, "speeding" the walker from start to finish (in this case from Syresham near Brackley to Kings Lynn). However, the entire walk can be broken down into day walks using public transport.
This series will eventually have 140 caches. It was started by, and is being managed by The Red Duke and if you would like to help by placing some caches in the series please contact The Red Duke via Geocaching.com so he can co-ordinate things.
The classic way to do this cache is as part of a walk along the whole Ouse Valley Way. If you are walking the whole route or even just a section of it please let us know in your log message.
Or you could park in Little Thetford and take a walk along the river bank to do 109 and 110. If you go this way TAKE CARE crossing the railway line – use the designated crossings and follow the posted instructions.
Cache 109 is a camouflaged 2ml tube with logbook but obviously no pencil. (When replacing please insert the log into the recess in the lid otherwise it’s hard to get it out.)
(No hints available.)
